Randomness 5-11

No video today. I did a take last night which was almost too long (>9 minutes!) but didn’t clarify many tangents. Good news is you all get at least two videos on hijab with more coherent thoughts from yours truly.

Yesterday was a super-long haul busyness around home:

  • Made hotel reservations and itinerary for the move. Following golden rule of travel #3, we will go as far as we can as soon as we can, stopping in Shawnee the first night and Nashville the second night. FYI – Motel 6 takes pets with no added fee.
  • Grocery shopped and fridge clean-out.
  • Washed dishes three 15 minute sessions, but still didn’t catch up!
  • Made chicken broth from leftover roasted chicken carcass.
  • Brewed herbal tea (in quart mason jar).
  • Made chicken al a king for dinner (mmmm) served over cornbread. The first white sauce failed to thicken, ba humbug. Good thing I had bought a gallon milk that morning.
  • Made long video before bed, laid awake reviewing what I said, decided to re-do.
  • Helped hubby in organizing his stuff and packed a couple boxes.
  • Watched my favorite tv show and knitted.
  • Read a chapter of a book out loud to Jeff before bedtime.
  • I was beat!

And, Ohmigosh, its the LAST WEEK OF WORK for me. I will miss my coworkers and perhaps a little of the actual work, but I will hold a personal celebration on Friday night. How should a Newly Liberated Woman (from industrial work) commemorate the occassion?

    By sitting on the couch and eating bon bons, because believe me, it’s the last time you’ll ever have the luxury of THAT stereotype.

      Tee-hee! Reinforce the stereotype just this one time, eh? Where does one purchase bon bons? [You can tell I don’t eat them, LOL]

    Celebrate by sleeping in, take time to enjoy each God-given moment, get pregnant…

    Pick a fun activity you’ve always wanted to do “someday, when I get the time” and do it. Especially in the hectic midst of a move, it’s fine to take a little time for yourself.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
